Don’t Pick Up Those Vibes

High Voltage

I’m  empathic and sometimes it gets to me. After a recent encounter with some negative energy, my husband suggested that I did not need to take on other people’s stuff. 

I laughed. It really is that simple. While I can’t help feeling the vibes, I don’t have to hold them. That made me smile, and then this song emerged…

 

Don’t Pick Up Those Vibes

 

Mascara streaks on my sleeves

Thinking about a lunch of wine or ice cream

Oh no, here comes UPS for me

 

He said are you OK, you look like hell

Yeah,  I just finished a meeting that didn’t go well

Way too much noise and not enough eyes

I guess I just picked up some very bad vibes

 

Well don’t pick up those vibes

They weren’t yours to collect

Just leave them on the table, or the Internet

Let them float right past you,

Lose that butterfly net

Hey don’t pick up those vibes

 

Grin as wide a my biggest jeans

Clearly amused by my state of being

Oh no, now he’s laughing at me

 

Are you sure you’re OK?, you look like hell

Yeah,  I just finished a meeting that didn’t go well

Way too much noise and not enough eyes

I guess I just picked up some very bad vibes

  

Well, don’t pick up those vibes

They weren’t yours to collect

Just leave them on the table, or the Internet

Let them float right past you,

Lose that butterfly net

Hey don’t pick up those vibes

 

I wish I could say I started to question my sanity

But what got me to pause was my very own vanity

Oh no, I don’t like looking like hell

 

So if you don’t want to look like hell

Especially after a meeting that didn’t go well

Best thing to so is take his advice

Don’t even pick up those very bad vibes

 

Don’t pick up those vibes

They weren’t yours to collect

Just leave them on the table, or the Internet

Let them float right past you,

Lose the butterfly net

Hey don’t pick up those vibes

Hey don’t pick up those vibes
